A world first: Sketch search in the latest version of 3D CAD models app

15.07.2014

The new PARTcommunity app version of CADENAS allows now faster product search through sketch drawing

The PARTcommunity 3D CAD models app by CADENAS is now available in the latest version 3.0.4. Besides many other optimizations in function and design, the popular, over 450.000 downloaded app now possesses the trendsetting sketch search.

Sketch Search by CADENAS

A Picture says more than a thousand words

Smartphone and tablet users with their relatively small screens and without real keyboard and mouse need a as simple as possible control interface. Especially in searches, typos can be extremely frustrating - even more so if there are special characters or case sensitivity. The latest version of the PARTcommunity 3D CAD models app has therefore been enhanced with a vital new element:

Through the "Sketch Search" called function, users of the popular app can now find parts not only through full text search or catalog browsing, but also through a simple sketch of the needed object. The interface is as simple as it is intuitive: Just trace the rough form of the object on the three sides of a cube and hit 'search'. If you want more detail, you can use various editing tools to refine the sketch and to narrow down the search results.

Intelligent interface meets clever communications

Also, the app's look&feel has been further improved. With the transition to flat design, the application now shows a much tidier look and provides an even more comfortable user experience - particularly on small smartphone screens. Another comfort function are the new sharing buttons. With those, selected content can now be shared with friends and colleagues not only by e-mail, but also through installed social media channels like Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.

Native app for Android and iOS

The PARTcommunity 3D CAD models app was developed and optimized specifically for both Android and Apple's iOS operating system. With it, engineers and purchasing agents in the sectors of machinery and equipment construction, as well as automotive have direct access to catalogs of more than 400 popular manufacturers with millions of components, which can be viewed as 2D or 3D models on smartpone or tablet. Additionaly, those CAD models can be downloaded and integrated in your own design environment in over 85 different CAD formats.
